Best Bond Funds
« on: July 18, 2014, 02:02:32 PM »
I'm curious to what you guys view as a good bond fund for a 2-4 year investment horizon? Sticking with the mustachian preferred Vanguard, here is a link of potential investments:

I'd think a minimum expected yield of 3% would be necessary or you could just drop the funds into an online savings account and get 1% or close to it.

To minimize risk, I would think a fund with investment grade companies and no more than medium duration would be preferred. In this light the VFICX fits the mold, but only has a yield of 2.52%.

Thoughts on the risk and reward of this account vs. others?
